Among countless other things, the life of Taylor Burgstahler represents the true strength of unselfish behavior. From his birth in February of 1988 to his tragic death in July of 2005, Taylor's concern for others was a cornerstone of his personality. His family, friends, teammates and teachers all marveled at the depths of his compassion.
Taylor's passion for athletics was just as strong, and it only seemed natural that he would donate his time to coach a youth basketball program at the Boys and Girls Club of Scottsdale, AZ.
